Merry Christmas! I hope your 25th is going well so far! We are spending the holidays with Alex’s family (it’s so much easier being from two different religious backgrounds) as we always do. This year instead of going out to Sag Harbor as we usually do we’re in NYC because any day now, Alex’s brother and our sister-in-law are going to have a baby! We are so excited to become an Aunt and Uncle!!
The 25th holds special meaning for us as a couple too — one year ago today we got engaged! (My Wedding Wednesdays series will start in two weeks.) It’s strange how the time has flown since then, yet it feels like a long time ago too. We purposely chose to have a long engagement but now the excitement is growing for our wedding in August 2019.
But back to Christmas, which has already featured one heck of a Christmas Eve meal prepared by Alex’s mom Anne and a game I’d never heard of but loved playing called What Do You Meme? This game, much like Cards Against Humanity which we’d played the last three years, is especially hilarious when played with people one or two generations older than you! Not surprisingly, my 20-something pop culture savvy cousin Lily and I tied for the win last night with round 2 to come tonight.
This outfit features Ann Taylor’s Shawl Collar Wrap Coat ($198 + 40% off today) which will get a 1 item, 3 ways feature in a few weeks. Every woman should have a coat like this one in her closet! Not only is it warm, it adds an instant touch of Audrey Hepburn-esque sophistication to any outfit. You should not be surprised to hear that I’m wearing it today over my Christmas Day outfit — I’ll post everything I’m wearing under the coat to my shoppable outfits page in just a bit.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, or for those who do not celebrate Christmas, happy Chinese Food and Movie Day!! We can’t wait to see “Vice” ourselves. From me + Alex (and Cinnamon too!) warm holiday wishes. Feel free to use the comments of this post to discuss anything shopping, from the Anthro sale (picks on the homepage just below this post!) to any other big promos happening today.
